The city of Reno will completely renovate Pat Baker Park on Oddie Boulevard and Sutro Street. Reno City Council Members and city of Reno staff will join partners to officially break ground on the project at noon today.
The Council unanimously approved to award Peek Brothers Construction with the Pat Baker Park renovation in an amount not to exceed $745,240. Staff anticipates that the renovation project will be completed by spring of 2017. All areas of Pat Baker Park will be closed during construction.
“Ward 3 looks forward to the upcoming enhancements at Pat Baker Park,” Reno City Councilman Oscar Delgado said in a press release. “Safety and community pride are essential for a healthy neighborhood. The new features will not only provide a space for neighbors to connect year-round, but will also raise the quality of life for all citizens.”
The project will provide several new park features including a multi-use sport court, water spray pad and fitness station. It will also replace the outdated playground and picnic shelter, plus make landscaping and irrigation improvements to the site.
The funding source for the renovation is "residential construction tax and Ward 3 funds," according to Delgado.
